Ag Informer – National FFA Convention This Week

FFA members, advisors and supporters from across the country will celebrate agriculture and agricultural education next week during the 95th National FFA Convention & Expo in downtown Indianapolis.

The event is Oct. 26-29 and will bring more than 60,000 FFA members from the U.S., Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands to downtown Indianapolis and central Indiana.

Those attending will participate in general convention sessions hosted at Lucas Oil Stadium, be inspired by their peers as they are recognized for their accomplishments and hear from keynote speakers. Convention attendees will also explore various career paths at the National FFA Expo, located in the Indiana Convention Center, participate in career success tours, and more.

This year’s live entertainment includes a Wednesday night concert featuring Lauren Alaina and Jimmie Allen and a Thursday night concert with Mickey Guyton and Russell Dickerson.

The event also features rodeos on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights.

FFA members and advisors can also take their skills to the next level in student and teacher workshops – hearing from industry leaders, motivational speakers and more – and watch members discuss their agricultural projects on the new Student Showcase Stage.

Service has always been a part of the FFA motto, and it will be front and center at this year’s event as members take part in service projects at the convention center and various sites in Indianapolis. In partnership with Book Pillows of Hope, members will construct more than 1,200 travel book pillows to be donated to schools, hospitals and first responders. In addition, FFA will accept new and gently used children’s books that will be donated with the travel pillows.
